The divine art of that peach blossom was extremely intricate, and its petals sliced through the air. It seemed to grow larger, gradually filling up heaven and earth, making everyone see nothing else.
The ghost ship's energy completely exploded, but the incomparably violent impact couldn't break through the worlds formed by the peach blossoms.
However, everyone outside the peach blossom petals felt the incomparably terrifying fluctuation, and their expressions changed drastically.
If this ripple were to reach their bodies, the energy time and space in their bodies would completely explode and cease to exist!
Finally, the ripples subsided.
"Celestial Venerable Yue…"
Qin Mu looked at the swirling peach blossom petals in a daze, and his heart trembled with excitement. He hurriedly tried his best to stabilize his mind.
Right now, they couldn't have any emotional fluctuations. After all, they didn't have corporeal bodies and were just energy bodies. Emotions were energy fluctuations.
Energy fluctuations meant that the energy was unstable and could explode at any time!
There was no substance binding energy in their bodies. If they exploded, they would be completely annihilated. Everything would be gone, including the black soul sand!
'This might be another divine art that completely destroys the soul…' Qin Mu thought to himself and was slightly puzzled. He was actually still in the mood to ponder about divine arts in such a situation that was neither life nor death.
At this moment, the rotating peach blossom petals became smaller as they contracted continuously. A woman with long hair fluttered in the wind as she flew over. She was like a goddess in the moon palace. She gently stretched out her hand and guided the two celestial rivers.
She connected the celestial river together and stretched out her thumb and middle finger to pinch the bare peach branch.
The swirling petals flew over one after another and landed on the peach branch, forming another peach blossom. The stamen gently swayed.
The woman lowered her head to sniff the peach blossom, but the peach blossom shattered into pieces.
The peach blossom was just an ordinary peach blossom, and it was her divine art that had blocked the energy explosion of the ghost ship. However, how could the peach blossom withstand such a terrifying impact? Thus, it was still destroyed.
"What a pity…"
The woman revealed a look of pity, and her expression was slightly sorrowful. However, she soon became happy again and said with a smile, "Falling in love isn't a heartless thing. Turning into spring mud will protect the flower even more. If I plant you, you will transform into a peach tree next year, and the peach tree will transform into a peach forest. It might even grow throughout the heavens and ten thousand worlds."
She put away the peach branch and looked at Qin Mu and the rest with curiosity.
Qin Mu flew forward and bowed. "We meet again, Celestial Venerable Yue."
This woman was Celestial Venerable Yue. The astonishment on her face became more intense.
"Celestial Venerable Mu?" She was surprised and delighted.
Qin Mu nodded his head helplessly and said, "It's me."
Celestial Venerable Yue hurriedly went forward and wanted to grab his hand, but she grabbed nothing. She was stunned, but when she tried to grab again, she still grabbed nothing.
Qin Mu said helplessly, "Our current situation is a little special, it's hard to explain in a few words. Over there is my senior brother, Wei Suifeng, and a few friends…"
Wei Suifeng hurriedly walked over to pay his respects. Feng Qiuyun saw Celestial Venerable Yue from afar and didn't dare to go forward. However, the High Emperor's corpse recognized Celestial Venerable Yue and couldn't help becoming excited. It roared, and the emperor's corpse became brighter.
Everyone's expression changed drastically.
Celestial Venerable Yue frowned. She plucked a leaf from the peach branch and threw it out.
The leaf grew larger, and with a whoosh, it came to the side of the High Emperor's corpse, wrapping him up like a dumpling.
Another world-shaking explosion rang out, and a terrifying beam of light shot into the sky from the top to the bottom of the dumpling. It pierced through the sky and left an incomparably deep hole in the ground.
"I lost another leaf…"
Celestial Venerable Yue sighed and frowned. "The person who exploded just now seems to be a fake emperor of the North High Emperor Celestial Heavens. Isn't he dead?"
She was puzzled.
Numerous Feathered Forest Guards dragged over a coffin that had transformed into light. There were two women lying side by side in the coffin, and one could see them clearly without opening the coffin.
One of them was extremely beautiful and captivating. It was a pity that she had already transformed into an energy body.
The other one was Celestial Empress. She was an ancient god. Even though she was dead, she still maintained her corporeal body and hadn't been transformed by the Grand Prime's Dao.
Qin Mu relaxed. Other than the lives of everyone on the ghost ship, the corporeal bodies of Celestial Empress and Jue Wuchen were the most important.
"Celestial Venerable Yue, our condition is very unstable. Can we find a secluded place?"
Qin Mu said, "I need to calm down and think about it, to see if I can solve the problem we are currently facing."
Celestial Venerable Yue smiled and said, "Follow me. I happen to have a place in the Primordial Realm for you guys, so you don't have to worry about being disturbed. Speaking of which, Mother Earth is also afraid of me. She definitely won't dare to provoke me there."
Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief and was slightly curious. 'Mother Earth? What era is it now?'
"Of course it's High Emperor Era."
Celestial Venerable Yue turned back and smiled. "It's been more than 19,000 years since High Emperor Nan ascended to the throne. In a few more years, it will be High Emperor's 20,000th birthday."
She was very happy and couldn't contain her joy. "What a coincidence that you are here. These few years, Sister Ling and I have controlled the Primordial Realm and developed it very well."
Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief and thought to himself, 'South High Emperor has lived for three hundred thousand years, and it's still twenty thousand years since the High Emperor Era. There's still some time before that huge change…'
Celestial Venerable Yue continued, "This High Emperor is the fifteenth High Emperor, and he has been sitting on the throne for almost twenty thousand years. The previous High Emperors are usually the saints of the human race and other Postcelestial races. The races of our Primordial Realm are developing so rapidly that even the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens couldn't compare to them!"
When she said this, she looked a little sad. She must have thought of Celestial Venerable Yun who had died in battle.
"The fifteenth High Emperor?"
Qin Mu felt a chill down his spine and immediately felt the energy in his body becoming unstable. He hurriedly controlled his emotions.
The fifteenth High Emperor had been in power for almost twenty thousand years. Didn't that mean he was very close to the High Emperor Calamity?
Celestial Venerable Ling and Celestial Venerable Yue were both killed during this period. Celestial Venerable Ling fell into an eternal cycle while Celestial Venerable Yue lost both her legs and became disabled!
Celestial Venerable Yue examined him curiously and secretly stretched out her hand to poke his body.
Her hand passed through Qin Mu's body, but she didn't touch anything. What she touched was an extremely terrifying energy.
"Sister Yue, stop fooling around," Qin Mu said helplessly.
Celestial Venerable Yue retracted her hand, and after a moment, she couldn't resist poking him again. Qin Mu said helplessly, "Stop fooling around, it's true. Even though it doesn't hurt, I still feel weird."
Celestial Venerable Yue was no longer mischievous. She looked back and saw Wei Suifeng leading tens of thousands of Feathered Forest Guards to carry Celestial Empress' coffin as they followed behind. In the distance, King Dragon Count, the seven Dragon Counts, and Feng Qiuyun looked from afar.
"Aren't they coming?" Celestial Venerable Yue asked curiously.
Qin Mu waved his hand and shouted, "King Dragon Count, Sister Qiuyun, come over together. Only I can solve this divine art. Without me, you guys could explode at any time."
King Dragon Count was helpless and said in a low voice, "Let's follow!"
Feng Qiuyun also hesitated and looked at the sky of the Primordial Realm. To the north, a celestial heavens made of pure divine metal floated above the Primordial Tree. That was Mother Earth's North High Emperor Celestial Heavens.
"I'm in that celestial heavens."
Feng Qiuyun followed the group, and a strange feeling rose in her heart. Her other self also existed in this world. 'However, I can only betray Mother Earth and follow Celestial Venerable Mu all the way to the underworld. What a hopeless situation…'
